Affected versions:
Nightly 71.0a1 (2019-09-17) (64-bit}
Beta 71.0b7

Affected platforms:
Windows 7/10

Steps to reproduce:

  • Launch Nightly or Beta
  • Go to youtube.com and play a video
  • Toggle PiP window
  • Click on the youtube miniplayer button

Expected result:
The youtube miniplayer should be displayed with the "This video is playing in PiP mode." screen while the video is played back in the PiP window

Actual Result:
The youtube miniplayer will play the video while the PiP window will freeze with a frame from the video. Recording: https://streamable.com/5dj4x

Notes:
Same happens if:

  • enable youtube miniplayer
  • enable PiP from the miniplayer
  • click on "Open video page" button from the miniplayer
    PiP window freezes while the video is played back in the youtube normal window
Priority: -- → P3

Changing the priority to p2 as the bug is tracked by a release manager for the current nightly.

Priority: P3 → P2
Depends on: 1583882

Speaking with astevenson, we think the simplest solution is probably the best for now - we'll close the PiP player window iff the <video> being displayed is ever removed from the DOM. That will happen in bug 1583882.
